    FRG headset cup.

    Someone knows if this Devinci inhouse FRG angle set would be compatible (warranty) on other devinci model like per say the Hendrix ?

    I don't know much about this headset - does it come separate or installed with their bikes, like the new Django or the Troy? Is it simply a -.5, 0 or +.5 degree HA adjust? That would take the Django 29er to 67.5 which in theory would be very interesting. I kinda like the idea of the Troy at 66.5 too, though wonder if you might need a 160 fork with that...

    I see that cup like a simple spacer that add 10mm to the front end height. It's the same thing as riding with a 160mm fork i suppose. for the rest, Iam in the dark to.

    This is correct. Not an angle adjusting cup, it just adds 10mm of stack below the headtube.

    Ahhhh.....so would that mean the BB doesn't drop when you slacken the HA by .5 degrees then? That would be pretty cool.

    Does it come with the bike or is it an extra from the dealer? Any idea on $?

    These cups should fit any of the 2017 model bikes (except Spartan) since they all have the same headset. You can expect dealers to sell them for $15-20. As mentioned above, all it does is add 10mm to the bottom of the headtube.

    I haven't installed one yet, but I think one of these headsets from FSA would do the trick:

    FSA Orbit Option T1 Angled ? 50/55mm - FSA
